Phil Brown is going into the remaining three games with an even more threadbare defence after Khumalo limped off yesterday before Preston surrended at Millwall. Leon Cort who has been out for a number of weeks travelled with the squad but was not included and could be risked into a return at home against Cardiff on Easter Monday. If he does not make it then Bailey Wright, the teenager will be thrown in against Bellamy, Chopra and the other Cardiff forwards. Sean St Ledger has been out since the last international games and is unlikely to feature for Preston for the rest of the season. David Gray is out for the season along with Mcgloghlin. The defence is already at breaking point with Jones playing at left back and Nicholson playing as an emergency right back. If Wright does come in then Cardiff will fancy scoring a few at Deepdale tomorrow.
